Jeff Greenfield Comments @ 5-6 minutes
Jeff Greenfield makes an excellent point when discussing with Aaron Brown the fact that "when it comes to long, sustained conflicts that American support does not hold up all that well". How very true this is... whether it be Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan or Iraq. The fact is that we - as Americans - always back actions initially, yet always have trouble holding onto that backing as times/situations progress. This is not any type of judgement (either for or against military action - at least on my part), but rather merely an observation that we have a tendency to wane with respect to support for our military when times get rough.
